Whatever you do, DO NOT use Diesel to try to wash out the back end as it will not drain fully and will dilute your new oil straight away. The correct way is to get the oil as hot as you can and drain it after working and leave it draining overnight or you can use Flushing oil and use it with that in it for a while and then drain it out and refill with the correct oil. GL1 oil was the original oil that was specified in the 1940's but Multi-grades are much better than that and you should consider using 10W/30 oil now, it doesn't get as thick and heavy when cold so it always lubricates no matter what, plus it has anti-wear properties which is much better.The water will be getting in through the bottom of the gear change Lever and you should fit a new Rubber Boot, it may also be getting in through the Draft Spring at the back of the seat, but all this may be seized up and need cutting off and replacing, don't try to force the adjustment or you will break or bend something. If you need help with this email me..John(UK)

So John, are you saying regular 10W30 engine oil is the way to go now? I am having a hard time finding 90W mineral around here. I have a TE20 that I have taken the hydrualics out of and am about ready to put back together.

I am surprised that you haven't seen the debate about this before, it has been going on for at least 3 years if not more. Multi-grade is better for transmissions and hydraulics, stays thinner when cold and doesn't allow as much wear to take place. The oil is a compromise between a gear oil for the Axle and Gearbox and a Hydraulic oil, the hydraulics are the most important, so you aim for one that is the best possible for that but without forgetting the Transmission and that is why you use 10W/30.We use it now in all temperature ranges all over the world....John(UK)
